Outdoor Photo of the Week: Olympic National forest

These photos were taken by Kristin Wall of KWDesigns. Here's what Kristin had to say about them:

These photos were taken on Jan.17 2010 in the Olympic National forest near Lake Mills. I particularly love these two shots because they give a true depiction of what the Olympic forest is all about - nature at it's purest.

  1. That's pretty green for January, isn't it?

  2. Nope. That's the Olympics in winter. Green, moss and wet. :) But so much fun!
